THE MOST pressing matter on my mind leading up to La Salle's Sweet 16 game on Thursday is how I am going to obtain a ticket. Not to the West Regional semifinal against Wichita State, but to the Flyers-Islanders matchup taking place in Philly on the same night. Let me explain. I'm a bit superstitious, and in my mind the only way for La Salle to win on Thursday, is for me to be in the building I've visited each day the Explorers have won an NCAA Tournament game this year - the Wells Fargo Center.

A year ago, both Council Rock South and La Salle saw their baseball seasons end in devastating fashion. In an error-marred state-quarterfinal playoff, C.R. South yielded three runs in the bottom of the seventh and bowed to Spring-Ford, 6-5. La Salle, after jumping out to an 11-0 lead in the first 11/2 innings of a Catholic League semifinal against Neumann-Goretti, gave up 13 runs in a nightmarish sixth inning and fell, 18-13. The chance to come full circle comes on Friday, when the Golden Hawks and Explorers clash in a PIAA Class AAAA championship game set for 1 p.m. at Penn State's Medlar Field at Lubrano Park.

LOS ANGELES - The good doctor didn't mean to be contrary. Dr. John Giannini was not being obtuse, or ornery, or even particularly prickly the past 2 weeks, when he disputed the "Cinderella" tag affixed to his Explorers. His dispute, of course, was meant to legitimize La Salle in his own players' eyes. He's practically a sports psychologist, for goodness' sake. Don't let him mesmerize you with that soothing tone. La Salle was as Cinderella a story as any team, ever.

AFTER AN 85-73 win over DMV's Finest in The Basketball Tournament, the Liberty Ballers made their way to the makeshift media room at Philadelphia University's Gallagher Center yesterday. They knew they were advancing to Chicago for the Super 17, just four wins away from the $1 million payday. As expected, they were ecstatic to be getting a free trip to the Midwest next weekend. There was another thing on their minds, too. "We've got to get 20th and Olney to win too, though," James Bell, a Villanova grad, said of La Salle's alumni team.

LAS VEGAS - So, who was the first person to start a game at center for the 76ers after it was announced that Joel Embiid would miss the upcoming season because of another foot surgery? How about La Salle alum Steve Zack? Yes, it was in the Las Vegas Summer League. And, yes, he was starting because the team decided to give rookie Jahlil Okafor the night off after he had played three games in four nights in Utah and then another two days later in Vegas. Zack is the kind of player a coach loves.

ROSALIA BADHORSE traveled 2,000 miles from the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation to Philadelphia, where she hoped to learn how to help her tribe back home in Montana hill country. After graduating last month from La Salle University with a business degree, Badhorse, 22, wants to create jobs in her hometown of Lame Deer on the reservation, where 78 percent of the people are unemployed. "We have one small grocery store, a gas station, a school, a bank and our little clinic," Badhorse said.

Archbishop Wood didn't take the easy route in advancing to the Catholic League baseball final for the first time since prevailing in 1993. Trailing La Salle by 3-1, the Vikings rallied for three runs in their last two at-bats, with the deciding score coming on a two-out throwing error, and eked out an improbable 4-3 semifinal win Wednesday at sun-splashed Neumann University. "Survive and advance, baby," elated Wood skipper Jim DiGuiseppe Jr. said. "It's playoff baseball. We kept getting at it. We were resilient today.
